Hello Hello everyone! It has been a little while since my last post….sorry.
So Andrew has been gone for about 3 weeks now and Chewbacca and I have been staying very busy.
I have also been trying out a lot of new recipes. But those will have to come in later in a different blog.
So enough boring you with what I have been doing I am just going to update you on my training for the half marathon so far.
This past Saturday I got up super early (5am) and ran 8 mi on the treadmill. This is the longest I have ever done on the deathmill and I do not know how I got through. I ran it in 71:11 mins….I was satisfied and felt great after. This was my longest run so far in 2013.
I have been starting my training off with more sprints and weightlifting than usual to get my body ready for the long runs. I do not want to injure my knees again and my pace has gotten slower since last year (I took a little too much time off around the holidays i guess).
I have gained a few lbs, only like 5lbs, but it is enough for me to notice and I feel that I have a faster pace when I weigh a little less. So I have also been trying to diet a little bit lately to drop the 5lbs. Which dieting for me means cutting back on the amount of Peanut Butter i eat daily…it is really hard!
Do you have an ideal weight that you like to be at when your are training?
P.S. Andrew is doing great! He is having a lot of fun with his internship and has made some great friends already 🙂 2 more weeks till we are reunited for a weekend!!!
